STATEN ISLAND — A woman who hit a 12-year-old boy with a hockey stick because she thought he was playing too loudly has been arrested, officials said.
Liudmila Kalmykova, 40, was arrested on Tuesday for the attack on an Eltingville street last month, prosecutors said.
On April 13, the boy was playing hockey on Crispi Lane at about 4 p.m., according to police and prosecutors.
Kalmykova thought he was playing too loudly so she grabbed his stick and hit him in the right leg with it, officials said.
The boy's leg swelled up and bruised but he didn't need to go to the hospital, police said.
Kalmykova was charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal possession of a weapon at her Tuesday arraignment, according to the Staten Island District Attorney's office.
She was released without bail, had an order of protection issued and is due back in court on July 11, according to online court records.
Contact information for her lawyer was not immediately available.
